Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Marionette Stringing advice?


 ........And I don't think there is any note on a piano that would require
1/4" solid steel "wire". I will check on my Mommy's Steinway when I see her 
next......

I didnt think we were referring to 1/4" solid steel wire, just piano/music/ 
high tensile steel wire and on Mommy's Steinway...assuming its a real 
Steinway of course.....you should find AT LEAST 144 lengths of solid steel 
"wire"....if its a fake it will only have about 100...Of course if IT IS A 
steinway and Mommy isnt a trained piano concertist you have just found a 
source for 24 lengths of piano wire...only the piano tuner will notice the 
missing harmonics.... ( A Steinway has four strings to the note in the upper 
register, most others have three)
But why are we stressing about High tensile wire? A piece of copper wire is 
going to outlast a nylon/dacron/silicon fillament! and be a lot gentler on 
it as well!
